by | Dec 20, 2019 | Leadership

2019 has been a tremendous year at Beem. As a company, we’ve experienced success and growth in many areas. From expanding our team, increasing participation at both regional and global events, introducing new services and extending our coverage and reach across Africa and beyond! Our Team We on boarded 5 team members across all departments including Sales & Marketing, Technical Support and Engineering. In 2020, we’re making our push towards serving you even better! New Products and Services In an attempt to offer a unified communications platform to our customers to enable them to reach, interact and transact with their customers with ease and to add on to our existing SMS services, we launched Mobile Airtime, Mobile Payments, USSD and Chatbot services. Learn more about Mobile Airtime here Learn more about Mobile Payments here Learn more about USSD here Learn more about Chatbots here Furthermore, we launched a Developer Champion Certification Program. The aim of the program is to bring exciting projects opportunities to freelance developers who complete our certification program by integrating our APIs on a real application. All successful applicants get to earn a free certificate and get referred to customers who seek to integrate with Bongo Live APIs but do not have the technical capabilities. Learn more about the program here http://champion.bongolive.africa/ Events As a result of our participation in various events and exhibitions in 2019, we got  the opportunity to meet innovators, start-ups, entrepreneurs, investors, technologists, policy makers, development partners and corporates from various sectors. It is through these events that we got an opportunity to showcase our services and build our network. Where we’ve been to in 2019:

Things to look forward to in 2020 It seems like 2019 has flown by very fast.

We’re totally excited about 2020 and everything that we’ve got in store in order to serve you better, meet your needs and exceed your expectations!
